Redknapp in bust up with Hutton

With the injury to Vedran Corluka in Milan, it was expected that Alan Hutton would return to the side against Blackpool and get another possible extended run of games in the Croatian`s absence, but as at the San Siro, William Gallas started at full back, and there wasn`t even a place on the bench for the Scot, but intriguingly there was no mention of him, nor was he mentioned on the lengthy injury list at the club.

It would appear that rumours of a fall out with Harry Redknapp are spot on and the pair fell out after Hutton took the brunt of his managers anger after a nightmare opening half against Fulham, where Hutton gave away a penalty and as were many others, had a terrible first 45 minutes. Hutton, rather than take his criticism quietly, decided to have an all out row in return, seemingly prompting a next day dressing down and his omission from the side ever since.

A club source claims: "Harry had a pop after Fulham because he felt Hutton had a poor game and Hutton stood his ground because he felt he was being unfairly treated. It was a stand-up row and serious enough for Harry to call him in the next day and freeze him out ever since."

At a time when Tottenham are really are down to the bare bones defensively, freezing out a player would appear to be a pretty damning statement over Hutton`s Spurs future and you feel if he misses the next couple of games, his career at White Hart Lane is over. It would also be a brave decision by Redknappp at a time when there is no other genuine right back at the club available to him for the next few weeks. Gallas will of course not let anyone down, but with only two fit CB`s Spurs really need his experience in the heart of their defence.With Kyle Walker returning in the summer, the end for Hutton at Spurs looked a possibility.
